Returning Citizens – Feature Documentary (completed)
One in ten DC residents have been incarcerated. Calling themselves “Returning Citizens”, this population is now banding together to lead the charge on what they see as the last bastion of a civil human rights issue. From freshly released individuals trying to find shelter, to activists who have successfully re-entered, Returning Citizens focuses on a passionate, close-knit community of individuals who are looking for a second chance – or perhaps a chance they never had to begin with.
“Returning Citizens” casts a light on what is needed in order to provide the formerly incarcerated, who have paid their debt to society, with a true second chance.
